TURN STRATEGY INTO REALITY

We offer front end solutions using proven methodologies designed to deliver a front end product that gets the user experience right the first time.

ENSURE SOFTWARE INTEGRITY

Through rigorous quality control, we ensure the integrity of your front end software or platform, so there is no disconnect between design and build. Our front end software engineers carefully match our designs and ensure the integrity of the solution from start to finish.

Where to start

We start by meeting with internal stakeholders to assess your project requirements. At this stage, if the project warrants it, we typically conduct in-depth user research of your audience and business goals, which may be captured as user personas and usage scenarios. We work with you to create specification documents that fit your development process.

TIMING
Duration will vary based on the complexity of the project, from weeks to months.

How we do it

Based on the UX design, we commence an iterative and collaborative implementation process, develop user prototypes and wireframes and test with end users. This can include:

  • Specification documents
  • Styleguides and Standards
  • HTML/CSS, coded visual design
  • Final product
  • Testing Plan for the intended UX

What you get

Our design and development services help ensure your products are truly market-ready and will be:

  • Used as-intended - reducing user error, support
  • Adopted by users - delivering ROI
  • Easy to use - ensuring optimal productivity

Experience Thinking™

Our Experience Thinking™ process underpins every project we undertake, elevating the product development process by recognizing users and stakeholders as meaningful contributors to the design cycle. The result:
powerful insights and creative design solutions that meet real user and customer needs. Click to learn more >>
